Maren Morris Reveals Private Support for Kyle Richards Amid Separation

We all need a friend in our corner when things get tough, and for Kyle Richards, that girl is Maren Morris.

The country singer revealed how she’s been supporting the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star during the challenges of her ongoing separation from husband Mauricio Umansky.

On Watch What Happens Live, Maren admitted that she’s been messaging Kyle. “I’ve been texting with Kyle,” she said. “I feel for her. I can’t even imagine that long of a relationship. She’s going through something, and we’re all watching it through a public lens. She’s a human being that’s going through a tough thing.”

Maren probably felt even more empathy with her friend as she also recently split with her husband, Ryan Hurd, after five years of marriage. Similar challenges probably inspired her to show solidarity with the RHOBH star.

Changing priorities

Maren’s revelation came on the heels of the November 15 episode of RHOBH, where Kyle openly talked about growing apart from Mo amid her journey to health and wellness. 

As she was speaking to Dorit Kemsley about her decision to get sober, she talked about how she just didn’t want to go to events with her real estate mogul husband. “You know how he loves to go drink. There are a lot of business events where I am supposed to go and be the supportive wife. Sometimes, it’s like I don’t want to go to these parties.”

During a confessional, Kyle reiterated how her newly-chosen, alcohol-free life impacted her relationship.

“Mo is in sales, and a big part of that is putting yourself out there and being social,” Kyle said. “And I’m at a place in my life where I don’t want to do that. I would much rather be home reading than going to an event, especially since I don’t drink anymore.”

And this shift in priorities might mean trouble for the future of their marriage.

“The way my relationship is right now, I’m not happy,” Kyle admitted. “I’m working on myself inside, and he’s very focused on his work. So, I feel like we’re growing in different directions. I don’t want to wake up a few years down the road and be like, ‘Who are you? What are we supposed to talk about now?’”

How will this progress throughout the season? We’ll just have to wait and see.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
